    I'm a bit confused about the taxes we pay for warehouses. Until recently I thought that the tax is only 280 gold for each warehouse.


    Now I clicked my warehouses again, and I see costs of 350 gold or more. Now I'm not sure how to decide when the tavern mission that offers to rent your warehouses is worth accepting (though they usually ask for more space than I can reasonably provide anyway).


    I found what was causing this - the displayed price includes the cost of additional guards :) Hiring them gets expensive...

    I also remember someone saying that it's not worth building warehouses at all (probably on one of the old forums that are gone now). Apparently someone made some calculations and figured that it's cheaper to just rent additional warehouses.


    Any thoughts?

    I have more strange facts to report :crazy:


    What if the game displays an incorrect number, but the fisheries still produce the right amount of oil? I went to test that on a weekly production of 65 fisheries:


    Salt (consumed): 934 (displays 750) (manager 816.9)
    Hemp (consumed): 43 (displays 37.5) (manager 37.5)


    Fish (produced): 429 (displays 375) (manager 375)
    Whale Oil (produced): 2106 (displays 1842.7) (manager 1842.8 )


    Something isn't right there...

    i included the wiki link in the english tips and tricks compilation

    Great :)

    Hi there :)


    Does anyone know how Whale Oil production formula works? I noticed an inconsistency in the amount of Oil those Fisheries produce.


    For example, one Fishery produces 28.3 Whale Oil. If we have 65 Fisheries, they should produce about 2022.7 Barrels of Oil (basically 28.3 * 65 * 10%bonus).


    And yet, the game displays 1842.7 Barrels of Oil. How does it get that number? I can't figure it out...



    I've been making the new business tool for the P3 wiki, and that formula works for every other building type. It even works for fish production in the Fishery - whale oil. Just not for the Whale Oil itself for some reason.
